Picture Perfect: SHADES of GRAY

“I saw Chungking for the first time more than 40 years ago –

a city of hills and mists,
of grays and lavenders,
two rivers shaping it to a point
and the cliff rising above me like a challenge.”


Theodore H. White
(1915-1986)
(American Journalist)

This photograph taken by me last summer in Ireland, just as it was about to rain, reminds of this saying by Theodore H White, even though, he was speaking of China, and I am talking about Ireland!

And, as to whether it is ‘grey’ or ‘gray’ here is a link to an article on the differences between the British and the US English. I personally prefer the American version on this particular word, ‘Gray’ –  for it looks so much prettier than the plain-old-dull ‘Grey’.

Hard to beat the Blonde’s logic on this, eh?!!

(Not a thing has been done to the photo, it is just as it was when clicked & taken!)
